1. Bold colours

The first trend you can expect to see a lot of this year is bold colours.

Following on from the fashion trend in 2022 for ‘dopamine dressing’ and wearing bright shades to boost your mood, Cherie said that bright and bold colours are making their way into our homes in myriad ways.

‘When using multiple bold colours in an interior, it helps to understand colour theory to ensure your space looks curated,’ Cherie wrote on her website

If you struggle putting colours together, she recommends the Canva Colour Wheel tool.

With this, you can pick the colour you’d like to start with and then the system will automatically recommend matching colours to create a balanced palette. 

Trending colours of the moment include purples, earth colours such as terracotta, clays and forest greens.

‘The sorts of colours you’ll find in your spice jars like mustards, paprika, turmeric and yellows will also add a lot of warmth to your room, making them feel a lot less sterile,’ Cherie said.

2. Accessories, accessories, accessories

More is more in 2023, with a return to patterns and accessories on the horizon.

‘Sorry minimalism lovers, layering your interiors are back,’ Cherie said. 

‘Home décor pieces such as unique vases, candles and ornaments are stealing the spotlight at the moment and will continue to be huge in 2023.’

The renovation expert recommends coloured glassware from the likes of Kmart and Anthropologie, as well as patterned plates from In The Roundhouse and Maison Balzac. 

But Cherie said you should also check out your local op shop, which could have stylish patterned accessories buys for a fraction of the price.

3. Smart storage

2023 will be all about smart storage and multifunctional pieces.

‘Whether it’s a table that can be used as storage, a coffee table and dining table all rolled into one, or nifty storage solutions that look good as well as being practical, 2023 is going to see the market saturated with multifunctional, artistic furniture and homewares,’ Cherie said.

IKEA spoke to their worldwide customer base, with the majority highlighting that they want more multifunctional buys.

In the next 12 months, it’s worth looking out for pieces that provide function as well as style.

Patterns will also be big in the next 12 months, including grid and check patterns as well as vintage-style florals and paisley prints (patterned cushions pictured)

4. Patterns

Patterns will also be big in the next 12 months, including grid and check patterns as well as vintage-style florals and paisley prints.

The renovation expert said a good way to commit to this trend without having to go all in is to opt for ‘throw pillows and cushions’ instead of entire walls and larger furniture pieces.

‘This is a great way to have fun with this trend in a low-risk, easily changeable way,’ Cherie said.

5. Natural materials

Sustainability is a byword for trendy right now.

And shoppers are increasingly looking for more natural materials including items made from Tencel, hemp, bamboo and FSC certified timber.

‘Raw finishes, natural finishes, meshes and recycled materials will be recurring throughout design, really highlighting nature and the simpler things in life,’ Cherie said.

You can add in warmer tones with your soft furnishings.

6. Bringing the outdoors in

Bringing the outside world into our homes has been a rising trend for several years now, and in 2023 it’s going nowhere.

Cherie said Aussies will continue to look to ‘bring the outside in’ as naturally as possible.

‘This can be achieved by strategically planting green spaces in front of window or door openings, providing a green view, straight into your home,’ she said. 

‘Fixtures such as window bench seats not only provide a practical sitting and relaxation zone, but views of greenery into your home.’

Finally, Cherie said something called 'transitional design' will be big this year, which means mixing mid-century and art deco with modern buys (stock image)

7. Mix and match

Finally, Cherie said something called ‘transitional design’ will be big this year.

Essentially, this means mixing mid-century and art deco boldness with ‘polished, modern accents’ in order to make a home feel fresh and characterful without feeling stuffy. 

You could do this by combining modern white cabinetry with old-school leather chairs.

The renovation expert said if you do this look well, a room will often look ‘striking without being contrived’.
